Mercedes Doubles Up on AMGs

The German automaker introduces two new models at the New York Auto Show: the CL 65 AMG and the limited edition CLK 63 AMG Black Series

Mercedes delivered two new performance cars at the New York Auto Show, replacing the dream car of many with new variants along what is now a 40 year-old theme. The new top-of-the-line CL 65 AMG has a V12 bi-turbo engine delivering 450 kW and 1000 Newton meters of torque, and for those who don't find the price tag exclusive enough, there's a limited run 40 units to be known as the "40th Anniversary Edition" with exclusive AMG Alubeam paintwork, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of AMG, the high-performance brand of the Mercedes Car Group (MCG). The new CLK 63 AMG Black Series represents a transition from motor sport into pure culture. The fast V8 coupe is visually and technologically closely related to the Official F1 Safety Car.
